MMWEC’s corporate home, located on an approximate 400+ acre, former Air Force base, is an ideal location for MMWEC’s Stony Brook Energy Center and Administrative Offices.
MMWEC purchased the former Westover Air Force Base Strategic Air Command site when it was declared surplus property by the federal government in the mid-1970s.
At MMWEC we know the Importance of Energy Efficiency
We made sure our office building captures the importance of energy efficiency and conservation, including an HVAC system that uses energy from the power plant to heat and cool the building.
Stony Brook Energy Center
The site also is home to MMWEC’s Stony Brook Energy Center, including the Stony Brook Intermediate Unit, the Stony Brook Peaking Unit, and diesel generators.
MMWEC/Master Sergeant Alexander Cotton Memorial Solar Project
The site also is home to the MMWEC/Master Sergeant Alexander Cotton Memorial Solar Project, a 7 megawatt solar project located on MMWEC’s Ludlow campus. Six MMWEC member MLPs participate in the project, located in Boylston, Ipswich, Mansfield, Marblehead, Peabody, and Wakefield. The project will generate more than 13,800 megawatt hours of solar energy per year, enough to power over 1,500 homes
